Yarn Support for Designers

RainCityKnits believes in supporting designers and are excited to offer yarn support. We are keen to work both with established and new designers.  

What Are We Looking For?

We are looking for patterns that are simple, modern and fashion-forward. Have a look at our shop to see the colours we favour.

While we appreciate and respect the diversity of knitwear design talent (we really mean that!), we are looking to partner on designs that align with our aesthetic. We are particularly keen on designs that follow current fashion trends.

That said, we welcome submissions for accessories and garments for all ages and genders. 

What's In It For You?

We will promote your pattern through our social media (Blog, Ravelry, Twitter). You will retain full rights to your design. You will get full yarn support.

If we decide to work together, we require you to list RainCityKnits as the sole exclusive yarn for your design. This includes links on your Ravelry and website pattern pages as well as other social media as appropriate.

What Do We Need From You?

If this all sounds good to you, please get in touch! Send us an email with the following:

  • A brief introduction
  • A sketch, drawing, photo of your planned design (low resolution is ideal)
  • The quantity of yarn you think you'll need for your design (based on a swatch of a comparable yarn)
  • Your Ravelry handle 

Please give us a few days to get back to you. Thanks for your interest in working with RainCityKnits!
